Tina Busse-Irwin is one of the Canadian riders competing in Florida this winter with the aim of being selected to the Canadian dressage team for the World Equestrian Games, in Tryon NC, this September. I spoke to Tina, at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival, after she finished her ride in the National show Grand Prix (BTW…she won with a 74%). I have asked all the riders the same seven questions. Here are Tina’s answers
What age were you when you started riding? I started riding at four years old. My Mum was a rider so we were always riding and we always rode together. She said; “I’ve got a pony for you and you’re going to ride!”
When did you decide that you wanted to be a professional rider? When I was in high school. I think I was 16 and I did the Young Riders for the first time.
